You don't read too well so I won't bother typing very much for you.

There is a difference between the thing I wrote, and the thing you interperted. Good luck.
Sounds like he's swapping out functional muscle mass for water weight, making everyone think their weight cut was easy(which it was, because cutting water is easy) but when it comes to fight time... Wheres those muscles you needed to stuff the takedown?
It's statistically proven heavily muscled guys gas, and leaner guys have more endurance... so if anyones able to understand what im saying:
1) The Dolce Diet is a farce, and is no more efficient than removing half the protein/calories from a fighter's diet to make him smaller in general, Making his cut easy.
2) Increasing the latest fad "superfoods" to make them believe this organic lettuce at 3$ will make them a better fighter than the 99cent lettuce.
3) Filling them up with water so before the real cut days, they weigh the exact same as they did prior to the dolce diet. And during cut time, remove the water.(easy cut) A psychological effect, not a physical improvement. Functioning muscle replaced by water to make fighters believe they'd perform as well just because of the numbers on the scale.
4) All fighters on the dolce diet looked noticeably less muscular than they were before it. On weigh-ins and fight time. And a skinny bicyclist will always "feel great" and better than a power lifter. That's where the "I felt great in there" after a fight comes from. Skinny rampage said it. Skinny thiago said it. Skinny Chael said it. After their losses.
I think that's the 4 core shenanigans of the Dolce Diet. Mike Dolce, failed in mma 5wins10losses... fails in dieting. Sneaky little italian...
